NFF Throws Eagles’ Coaching Job Open

The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has announced that it will advertise the position for  coach of the Super Eagles and make an appointment on 1 October.

Earlier, the NFF had been  discussing with former Olympic team coach, Samson Siasia, but   the executive committee member ,Chris Greene, told reporters after a meeting yesterday that  the board had resolved to advertise the position.

Siasia’s negotiations with the former board was deadlocked on his personal terms, which  included a $100, 000 monthly wage and $1m sign-on fee.

Former Chairman of the NFF Technical Committee, Dominic Iorfa revealed before the FA  election that an agreement had been reached in principle for a monthly wagesof $60 000, and  no sign-on fee, subject to board approval.  The current development will now allow the likes  of stand-in coach Austin Eguavoen, former captain Stephen Keshi and other interested coaches  to throw their hats in the ring.
